Mathis tested below legal limit in OWI arrest


By Heather Collins 

Former Indianapolis Colt Robert Mathis was arrested in Carmel Oct. 24 for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.


A Carmel Police Dept. officer stopped Mathis, 36, at 12:09 a.m. for traveling the wrong way on a one-way street and failing to signal a turn near Windemere Boulevard and Bishop Circle.

A breathalyzer showed Mathis had a blood alcohol concentration of .052, which is below the legal limit of .08.

“That combined with the other factors based on the investigation determined that he was impaired and not safe to operate the vehicle,” CPD Sgt. D.J. Schoeff said.

Mathis was transported to the Hamilton County Jail. He was released at 8:40 a.m. through the pretrial release program without paying bond.

Mathis, a Carmel resident, played defensive end for the Colts for 14 seasons and is a defensive coach for the team.
